Cheap cars FAQs

The smaller the car, the less you’ll need to spend on both fuel and road tax. A smaller car is lighter and therefore more frugal on fuel. The Hyundai i10 or Peugeot 208 have efficient engines and return impressive fuel usage figures. Despite their size, they’re incredibly practical and would tick the boxes for most people’s day-to-day needs. They’re also a lot better for the environment. So not only can you feel better about the car you’re driving, but you won’t need to pay as much in road tax.

Cars that are cheap to insure are simply some of the safest available, and most economical to repair. Cheap and slow is the way to go. Every car down to each specific engine option is categorised into a group - taking performance and the cost of repair into account. These insurance groups range from 1 to 50. If you’re on a budget, try to get a car with a low insurance group number - the Toyota Yaris and Volkswagen Polo have a few models in group 1.

Through carwow obviously… but you can save even more. Every model of car has options, packages and different engines to choose from. To save money on a new car just think carefully about what you need and avoid the temptation to go for the top spec. Through our website you can find easy to understand descriptions of these options to help you pick what’s best for you.
